First Influenster VoxBox
Last week I received my first Influenster VoxBox: the Moisture Renew VoxBox! This box contained a complimentary Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in the shade 360.
I received the VoxBox a few days after our trip to New York City (I’ll admit, I was semi- bummed at the timing of its arrival, I would have loved to have worn it out last weekend!). In regards to beauty products, I would say that I wear a light to moderate amount of make up each day. It’s very rare that I go a day without putting on at least mascara or blush, and up until about two years or so ago, it was extremely rare that I would wear lipstick.
Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Review
Growing up, the idea of wearing lipstick always seemed so dramatic and over the top. I remember putting a very light shade of pink on one morning before class back in high school. To my utter dismay and embarrassment, a classmate called me out on it, making me feel so silly that I never attempted to pull it off again. From that moment on, I had deemed wearing lipstick as something only older women could get away with without looking ridiculously cheesy or stupid.
Flash forward about eight or ten years later, my outlook and comfort level on wearing lipstick has completely changed. After all, dressing up with lipstick is fun! Typically I don’t wear Rimmel London products, so when it came to trying out the Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick, I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from it.
The first thing I noticed about the lipstick was during the application process. I noticed how incredibly smooth it was to apply- it literally felt like the lipstick was gliding across my lips without me moving it or pressing down. I decided to wear it to a casual dinner with friends and test my luck. To my surprise, the lipstick stayed throughout the evening and didn’t get on my clothes. However (as with many bold lip colors), removing the lipstick was not quite as simple as applying it. Due to the boldness of the color, the lipstick left a stain on my lips even after removing it.
Overall, my experience with the Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick was a very positive one. The color was fun and the application was easy (as long as you didn’t change your mind about it two minutes later or miss your lips when putting it on!). In regards to practicality, this shade would not be one I would wear regularly, but I am interested to check out other shades from this brand!
